Store Receipt:

It is common to crumple up a receipt and toss it in purse, pocket or bin but touching your proof of purchase is not at all safe. Receipts are printed on thermal paper covered with a thin coating of powder that contains BPA, an endocrine-disrupting chemical which has been linked to breast cancer, diabetes, and hormone abnormalities in children. So avoid touching it or putting it in a shopping bag with food items. To manage hormonal abnormalities book yourself an appointment with the best endocrinologist in Karachi, Lahore and other main cities of Pakistan via Marham.pk.
